Taliban militants in Afghanistan have shot dead a policewoman in a provincial city, witnesses have told the BBC.
The woman, named in local media as Banu Negar, was killed at the family home in front of relatives in Firozkoh, the capital of central Ghor province.
The killing comes amid increasing reports of escalating repression of women in Afghanistan. . .
Details of the incident are still sketchy as many in Firozkoh fear retribution if they speak out. But three sources have told the BBC that the Taliban beat and shot Negar dead in front of her husband and children on Saturday. . .
The family say Negar, who worked at the local prison, was eight months pregnant. (Read more from “Taliban Execute Pregnant Police Officer in Front of Family” HERE)
